The world is full of strange behaviour
Every man has to be his own saviour
I know I can make it on my own if I try
But I'm searching for a great heart to stand me by
Underneath the African sky
A great heart to stand me by


In a fitting tribute to one of the most iconic figures in South African music history, the Johnny Clegg Tribute Show, has been moved to the 16th of July, 2022 at the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens (Johannesburg), which marks the third anniversary of Johnny’s passing, and will feature some of South Africa’s top performers.

Johnny Clegg had the special quality of being able to unite people across all backgrounds and generations with his music.  His music has always been a beacon of hope and inspiration and in a time when South Africans and the world need it the most, the lyrics to Great Heart stand true.

Patrons who are already in possession of their tickets must retain them as Computicket will swap them with the new tickets closer to the time.  Patrons who have booked online but not yet collected, their tickets will reflect the new date. 

Johnny Clegg captured the hearts of a nation and the tribute concert will feature fellow musicians that will commemorate his life and his musical career.  There will also be a dance tribute performed by dancers from Zululand and the local hostels.

Biggest line-up of performers since ‘Concert in the Park’ to pay tribute to the iconic Johnny Clegg - Some of South Africa’s top performers will come together on one stage, including the likes of Soweto Gospel Choir, Just Jinjer, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Karen Zoid, Zolani Mahola, Francois van Coke, Majozi, Kurt Darren, Arno Carstens, Jesse Clegg, plus others to be announced.

Paying homage to a unique partnership that started back in the early 70’s, Johnny’s long-time friend, Sipho Mchunu (from Juluka-fame) will also be making a special appearance; as well as Bright Blue, Ella Mental and éVoid (who are specially flying back to South Africa for this event) – the last two having performed alongside Johnny at the Ellis Park Stadium iconic Concert in the Park in 1985.

Johnny Clegg – The Tribute Show will take place on Saturday, 16th July 2022 at Emmarentia Botanical Gardens (entrance on Thomas Bowler Street).  Gates open at 10h00 with performances commencing at 11h00 – 18h00.

Money will be raised at the event for the Click Foundation, supporting ‘The Friends of Johnny Clegg’ charity which was established with Johnny in December 2018.
